Lifeline of Baltimore and Salisbury, Maryland which now also extends to Millville, Delaware. 


   Missionaries to our community!

   We've been expecting you!!


        Listen real close…CAN YOU HEAR IT?

The sound of people echoing the cry of their hearts? Some are whispering it; some are singing it, while others are SHOUTING IT LOUD! One thing's for sure, today's person is not satisfied with yesterday's solutions and religious routines. We won't be satisfied with little pat answers, or be soothed by a new outfit.

We want a revolution and we hear the stirrings of it at Lifeline. We want to make a difference in other lives, so we are stepping out by faith. The Bible tells us that "Faith without works is dead". Well, are you ready? Are you ready to put your works with your Faith?  I know you are or you would not be here today. So...


Our Mission -

To help people of all ages, color and economic backgrounds to become whole, prosperous and victorious people, living healthy, happy and rewarding lives.


Our Vision -

To build unity, trust and honor among others through Fellowship, Worship, Teaching, and Prayer. To establish a  person's worth and identity not by what they do but by who they are; to sharpen, strengthen, and encourage one another in our individual gifts and callings. To provoke and develop a spirit of excellence as a woman, man, wife, mother, husband,  and co-worker in our community.  We desire to link arms with the local agencies and other programs; together, touching our cities and reaching our communities!


 Our Goal -

To instill self worth and provide tools for a more productive, healthy and rewarding life. To change our world by remembering…… It takes ONE NATION to make a difference in our world. It takes ONE COMMUNITY to make a difference in our nation. And it only takes ONE PERSON to make a difference in a family.

When considering giving to some of the causes you may see throughout our website please remember the story of Joe. He was only known as Joe,  because he was homeless. To a lot of folks homeless people become known as just faces. They loose their identity and their self esteem is little to none. Well, in Joe's story, there were lots of people who would pass his way everyday. In their minds they would mull over if they were to give whether Joe would use the money for something good.  You know, liquor or beer. They almost gave lots of times. They almost went home, gathered a blanket to take back to Joe. They almost drove Joe to a shelter. Well, one night Joe almost made it through the night. You cannot go back and say "If only I had...." Please give! If you can give and don't have time to get involved or just don't want to get involved, your money can go a long way toward helping an individual or sometimes a whole entire family.

Lifeline Supports Apostolic Outreach on the streets of India--March 2019

Lifeline financially supports Victor Naveen in his Apostolic ministry on the streets of India. His outreach serves the orphans, the homeless and the lepers. Much of life's castaways whom Jesus came to love and to save. He was not afraid to go amongst them and be their friend and their Savior. We are supposed to reflect Christ; we are supposed to be His eyes, His ears, His hands and His feet. Go out from the 99 and find that one lost sheep. Love them, feed them and show them God's love. Love lifted us from the agony of the cross and as God's children let us shine God's love into the hearts of the hopeless🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼

Thanksgiving and Christmas-2018---Barbara Laukaitis, owner of White Marsh, once again proves to be an angel of mercy for her Community!

Barbara Laukaitis, owner of Curves at White Marsh, comes through once again for those in need. She is seen in this photo on the far left. She not only helps people get in shape physically but she reaches out to them by giving every year to those less fortunate. She has such a big heart and she walks the talk. She is a proven staple for LIFELINE OF Baltimore . Why? She cares about her community and she and her members work overtime to make sure they fill as many needs as possible. She has stepped up to the plate for about 10 years now. In this world, I. The time we live in tight now, this speaks volumes. Saying "thank you" really could never really convey what is in my heart. Barb, we love and appreciate you very much❤️❤️❤️

Thanksgiving and Christmas 2018

BGE Linemen deliver to families in need for Christmas -December 2018

Tim Owens, BGE (Exelon) lineman and his coworkers once again hit it out of the park with helping and extending compassion to those in need by collecting donations, purchasing and delivering to families with extenuating circumstances that were dire. We never know how fortunate and blessed we are to have a job, a home and food on our tables. However the most important thing is being healthy eough to work and provide for your family. Some of the folks we delivered to had brain cancer (father of family with children ) who also had a child who was 6years old and could not speak. He was being transported back and forth to Kennedy Krieger. Another family, the mother was elderly with COPD and her husband was blind. The last family had recently lost their jobs, no income, no food and two children with no presents under their tree, which for the adults are the least of their worries; but which one of us would like seeing a tree with nothing under it for your children? I would say none! 

These Linemen sacrifice every year for the past 15 years and don't plan on stopping anytime soon. Exelon (BGE) should be very proud to employ guys that have hearts of gold and endless compassion. The families are all told who these men work for and make a big impression in the community that assure them that BGE truly cares. 

ThanksTim ad crew for a job well done❤️

See Facebook Fundraiser for Food Baskets for the needy-Thanksgiving & Christmas


We all know how unfortunate situations (loss of job, loss of loved one, homelessness, health issues or just  loneliness) can become very distressing during this time. Lifeline each year strives to provide Thanksgiving baskets chocked full of everything needed to serve a family of 4-6 or a family of just 2 (seniors). Our goal is to lift their spirits by being able to sit down to a nice family dinner and to let them know there are those that care❤️The need for baskets continues to grow each holiday for we also do Christmas. Because many times Social Services are flooded with these needs we get the overflow plus those families referred to us by other community programs. Lifeline works totally on private donations and volunteers. I am asking for donations to fill as many needs as possible for we hate when we have to turn someone away. If you cannot do cash donations (any amount appreciated) we will accept food donations toward the baskets. For more info please inbox me or call me at 410-262-0875. Ask for Debra. For more information on our program please visit our website @ We serve Salisbury MD., (New Life) and (Life Center) in Essex, MD.  

 Please consider being a part of changing someone’s life by lending a helping hand up 🙏



Meeting Needs-Sharing Blessings

As we travel this journey called life we find out just how truly blessed we really are. I have people calling asking for beds, asking for sofas, kitchen tables. Why? Not because they are looking for freebies but out of necessity. Most have children and have found themselves in situations beyond their control many times and just need a helping hand up. We are there to be just that. When we think of all the things we have that we don't use, we have way more than we need. Share, give, help and I assure you that there will be blessings beyond your imagination as long as we do it expecting Nothing in return. May God bless you always!

Senator Johnny donated time and resources to get the job done.

With the help of Senator Johnny and Kathy Vaughan we were handily able to get the job done last year. I believe it was at least 25 families who received a basket. They worked tirelessly to travel to various locations to deliver when the recpients could not pick up. Businesses such as Curves in White Marsh and saints from The Life Center located at 200 N Marlyn Ave graciously donated time, money and food baskets to help their community. They deserve to be applauded not because they expect it but because they deserve it. This year, 2018, baskets will be arranged and delivered by Cabre Boyd, Kathy Vaughan and Michele Kupner. Curves of White Marsh comes to the rescue once again. Barb and her members are very active in caring and giving to others. Please remember this when looking for a place to work out for you will receive so much more. Thanks to everyone and may God bless all. 

Thanksgiving help for Baltimore County and Salisbury, Maryland 2018

Thanksgiving is the time of year when families get together and enjoy and appreciate each other. We give thanks for our blessings that God has given us all year long. Lifeline is here to see that those families or individuals who do not have food and sometimes even a place to lay their head can also celebrate through our giving, our sharing of our blessings and true commitment to serve others. That is our true purpose and we strive to fulfill that ministry. Please join with us and I am sure you will share the joy and the love you feel in helping others. 

Clothes and toys to Handicapped School Children-May 2017

Bags of clothing, shoes and toys donated to handicapped children and some needy staff as well. You never know what things you may have that may bless someone in need. Should you have anything in good condition to donate please feel free to call me@ 410-262-0875. 

My name is Debra. Thanks so much for caring🙂

Curves of White Marsh and BGE team up with Lifeline of Baltimore to serve a total of 9 families with food and gifts.

Tim Owens and team of BGE deliver groceries to need families for Christmas.  At the same time Curves in White Marsh and their generous members are hard at work collecting to assist a senior and a high school girl who would have been left without anything!  Senator Johnny Salling assisted in deliveries. Never leaving out Kathy Kraemer and co-workers from Precinct 6  in Towson who also pitched in and assisted a shut in with gifts. Hats off to all of these folks and their big hearts as well their time and talent spent on making Christmas 2016 successful! 

Thanksgiving Help for the Veterans-2016

Mary who is in her 80's is the spokesperson for the Veterans. She colunteers downtown for the Veterans as much as possible. She know many families would not have thanksgiving dinner if not for our baskets so she ask for at least 5 or 6 baskets yo fill that need. Thank you Mary for looking out for those who served our country but have been left wanting! 

Life Center and Lifeline assist approximately 35 families with full Thanksgiving dinners-2016

Thanks to all who gave freely to those families who otherwise would not eat a Thanksgiving dinner. Lifeline and Life Center was able to provide approximately 35 baskets filled with all the fixings for families in need. We even had the assistance of Senator Johnny Ray Salling in delivering to some of the families. He spent a good amount of time putting them together and getting them to the family in need. We all know this is a busy time but let's not forget the real reason, not the hustle and bustle, but being a servant at all times. Caring is sharing our blessings!  Thanks to all who participated! 

New Apostolic Life Center in Salisbury helps 27 families with full Thanksgiving dinners.

27 baskets filled with all the fixings for a fantastic Thanksgiving dinner, put together with love by God's people. Thank you NALC for caring for others and showing it by being a servant! 

2016--Thanksgiving Help for many families from Curves @ White Marsh

Barbara Laukaitis , owner of Curves @ White Marsh, once again came to the rescue of many hungry and needy families. She and her members worked tirelessly to gather food and fill baskets, many baskets. Words are cheap, but its all I can offer at this time but clearly words cannot convey the thanks and appreciation for their help. Please visit her business, if you are not in the market to join, stop in and thank her. We all know the new year is upon us and there would be no better place to get in shape than here at "Curves @ White Marsh" ! 

We would like to thank Senator Johnny Ray Salling who assists in delivering to some of the families that had no transportation to pick their basket up! 

Curves of Whitemarsh has pledged 12 baskets for Thanksgiving of 2016

Barbara Laukaitus is more than an owner of a business who pledges to increase the quality of the women who belong to Curves but she has for many years been behind helping those in her community who are in need. She, without question, will head the drive along with the very giving members  of Curves and never fails to come through. She really needs to be commended and she definitely is laying up treasures. She does this quietly and unassuming seeking no glory but works tirelessly each year. Thank you Barbara from the bottom of our hearts. You may never know on this earth the lives you have touched but you will someday! 

Lifeline is now preparing for Thanksgiving &Christmas 2016 🦃🦃🌲🌲🌲

Many families are in need this year. Schools have contacted us to ask for help for the neediest of the needy. Their stories are very sad  and involve children as well. Resources have been stretched very thin so Social Service agencies are reaching out for help. We need donations to buy turkeys/hams as well as enough  food to fill baskets that will allow these families to at least enjoy a good meal. If anyone can donate  food or monetary donations, we will do the shopping. Please contact Debra Gallio @ 410-262-0875. Thanks for your consideration to provide help for those less fortunate than ourselves. 

Lifeline is now in Delaware (Millville)

Thanksgiving 2015

A big shout out to Curves @ White Marsh for their huge donation that fed 10 families at Thanksgiving 2915. Barbara, the owner, has such a huge heart! She along with her members continue year after year to amaze me! They take giving to their community to a different level! Lifeline can count on curves and this says a lot about this business and it's owner! If you are looking for fitness place where you will be more than just a number, choose Curves of White Marah. Barb, will take a special interest in your goals and help you to achieve them!

Lifeline also had a special and honored guest who also took a special interest in the needs of the people in his area.  Ric Metzgar, Delegate for the Essex, Middle River and Dundalk area along with Todd Knudson and Kathy Vaughan delivered baskets to a couple of schools in his district. Feast for Families made sure 15 families were fed for Thanksgiving. Hats off to Ric land his group for caring and putting that care into action! Together we assisted over 65 families and over 300 people ate because of people who really care.  Stay tuned as Lifeline gears up for the Christmas Holidays! 


Barbara Laukaitis-Owner of White Marsh Curves-December 1, 2014

A huge shout out to Barb and her members. This group of big hearted, community minded people, led by the most wonderful angel (Barbara Laukaitis) has been the saving grace for a great number of families. With Barbara leading the way, she makes sure many needs are supplied, not only for Thanksgiving (30 plus families this year)  and Christmas but whenever a special need arises. She has been a special help to many seniors who have survived because of her and her members. I want to make sure everyone knows where to find this business. It is most worthy of your patronage not only for their big hearts but because of her success in helping people reach their goals. If you are looking at making some New Years resolutions that includes a health and exercise change, please look Barb up. You will not be dissapointed!

Shoes for Kids-09/22/2014

Lifeline and our Backpack Ministry operates through our schools. We accept referrals and will review the need. If the family meets the income guidelines and the resources are available the footwear for the children will be provided. For more information, please contact Debra @ 410-262-0875.  If you have funds or shoes that you would like to donate we will accept shoes in good condition and/or new as well. 

Backpack Ministry Continues to Grow -Update December 1, 2014

As a child I grew up in the Appalachian Mountains. I know what it is like not to have enough food to go around. The Backpack Ministry helps those children who may fall into this area. There are probably more of those families in the Essex, Middle River and Dundalk area than you know. These families are barely making ends meet and many times have to choose between necessities. This is not a nice place to be in and even though the parents are trying for some reason or other they just need a helping hand. This is where this ministry may fill the gaps. We fill a backpack with the food needed to get the child through the weekend and back to school where we know they will get a hot lunch and possibly breakfast as well. We do this in a way that does not make them stand out and if they don't want anyone to know then it is possible they may never find out . We fill the Backpacks every Friday and the child picks up the Backpack in the Guidance Counselors Office. Once they empty the bag over the weekend they bring  it back on Monday and the process begins all over again.

We also keep our eyes open for any other basic needs the child may have. For example it came to our attention that a little 3rd grader did not have any shoes and the parent was not in a place to buy them at this time. We supplied (2) pairs because we had funds available at that time. We may not always be able to meet every need but we can try to meet the most needed ones.

For more information on this Ministry please call Debra @ 410-262-0875.   Donations are always accepted for the needs far outweigh the resources!



This ministry is now supplying food for 30+ children on the weekends. We also adopted 4 families that received full Thanksgiving Dinners. We will be doing the same for Christmas with at least one toy for the children. May God continue to bless as we continue to meet needs of the less fortunate knowing if not for the grace of God there go you or I!

BACKPACK MINiSTRY! Nobody child should go hungry!

Please look for dates and times for participating schools.  If you know of a child that is in need please let us know! 

Tim's Final stand

On October 13, 2013, our dear friend and brother Tim Bishop passed away. Tim came to us about 7 years ago. He was a homeless man who had been sent to the streets when his mom who took care of Tim passed away. Tim was mentally handicapped due to an accident when he was young so being on the streets was a huge shock to Tim. It was very difficult for Tim since he was constantly beat up and robbed. When Tim wondered into our church we saw Tim had more needs than just homelessness. He needed a home, an income and someone to basically manage his funds for him otherwise he would be robbed everytime he would have a little cash on him. God spoke to us and let us know this was our mission to help Tim. This is exactly what we did. We helped him secure his SSI benefits, found a place for Tim to live, bought his food and clothing and Tim was able to have spend money for whatever he wanted for a few years. However, gradually we realized Tim was having more difficulty than usual just getting around. We took him to have this checked out and found that Tim had Huntingdon's disease. The doctor told us since we have no idea how long Tim had this we could not give a life span for the disease. Could be a couple of years up to 10. We knew Tim needed more than we could provide at that time so Tim went to live at Manor Care in Towson. Tim had been able to have a house, food, clothing and lots of love for over 3 years. We were devestatedi but Tim did not seem to mind that much. It was almost like God whispered to him that everything would be ok. He felt safe and he knew he was getting sicker.  Tim lived at Manor Care about 2 years and just recenty we received word that he also had been diagnosed with cancer. Tim had very little time left. We  at Lifecenter had come to love him very much. He was part of our family. We visited Tim, made sure his birthday's and Christmas's were the best they could be. On October 13, 2013, Tim went home to be with the Lord. We thank the Lord for allowing us to be a part of his life. Tim was meant to change our lives not the other way around!

Thanks to members from Life Center, Kathy with help from Towson Precinct 6 and Barb @ White Marsh Curves and their members,  we helped 15 families with toys for children, gifts for Mom and food for their Christmas Dinner. I am sure the children will be delighted when they wake up on Christmas thanks to folks like you. You blessed others with your blessings and we thank you. You are angels in waiting.......

White Marsh Curves-Angels at Work! 12/21/2013


Words can never relate the thankfulness that we have for what you have done. You and your members working hand n hand to make sure those less fortunate could enjoy Christmas. Children that had no hope of gifts under the tree. Children that had no tree for gifts to be under and even those who have no permanent home to have a tree. The elderly that have no family that cares enough to remember they count too. No friends to jump in when there are needs that need to be met, even the basics like food. You and your members stepped in and earned your name of Christmas Angels. Gifts will be delivered between today and tomorrow. Stay tuned, pictures will follow. For those of you looking for a great place to work out. Does this say enough about the owner and those who work out there???

Thanks to Precinct 6-we can serve those in need again this year! 12/20/2013


You and your friends at Precinct 6 in Towson did a wonderful job again this year! You never fail those in need. You ask for a list of needs and you try your best to make sure you cover all. So above and beyond!  Those in need will have something to smile about on Christmas day thanks to all of you. A lot of work went into coordinating this and I just want to tell you how much Lifeline appreciates it. You are just great people caring for others and again, I was speechless!   Thanks again.

Richardsons Farm sponsors 2nd Lifeline Community Garden--05/27/2012

Lifeline would like to thank Richardson's Farm located on Ebenezer Road in WhiteMarsh for making this community garden possible. They graciously donated all plants for the Second year in a row. Richardsons is a great part of our community and they give back to their customers who have supported them by giving to projects like this. The vegetables that this garden will  render will go to feed the poor. Those who otherwise cannot afford fresh vegetables for their family. Our goal is eventually that this garden will allow us to offer employment to someone that otherwise would not have a job;  all because someone cared enough to be a part of this community effort. Thanks Richardsons and we know God will bless!

The Best Christmas In Years

Thanks to Baltimore Police Presinct #6, Marie had the best Christmas in years. These were  her words as a troop of girlscouts sang Christmas Carols on her porch and many gathered to wish her a Merry Merry Christmas.Kathy and Tom, both Police Officers collected gifts and money to help her with her daily expenses. To buy food and not worry about getting her medicine. To say the least, there are lots of caring people out there and when there is a cause as worthy as this one everyone works together.

Curves in White Marsh also were very instrumental in supplying  much needed help to Marie and allowing her to breathe easy for a while. Barb, thanks for caring. Thanks for helping. You have not met Marie but you are kindred spirits now because of your big heart. Thanks Barb!

Everyyear we reach out to the most needy families. This year Marie was one of many that we have assisted. Many with food, many with gifts and many with both. Thanks to all who helped, to those who gave of their time and resources to make sure others could be blessed!

How do we celebrate Christ's Birthday? By sharing his love with others!

Making our list and checking it twice of those who need help!

Tim Bishops Birthday

Tim Bishop was our very first client. He is now a part of our family. For the past 5 years we have provided for Tim, both income and a place to call home. We took care of Tim's needs, such as clothing and food. In August of 2010, Tim was diagnosed with Huntington's disease and now lives at Ruxton Manor Care on Charles Street so that all of his medical needs can be given. December 22, 2010 was Tim's 52nd birthday. A group of us went to visit Tim. We took a birthday cake and many birthday/Christmas presents. Tim was estatic. He was so happy and it really showed that he had dearly missed us all. We love Tim and we pray that he continues to be happy and as healthy as he possibly can be in his new environment. We will continue to go see Tim and let him know that his family truly misses him.

Miracles Never Cease

During the months of April and May we continued to receive donation after donation of food. We are talking top grade items. Lobster, steak, shrimp, soups, breads, cheeses, cookies, crab covered chicken breast, etc. Because of the quantity of the food we not only were able to feed many low income and homeless people who live in Baltimore and surrounding areas but look what else we were able to do. We provided 277,000 meals to people in Haiti. Because of the way this food was packaged it was able to reach the most remote areas. We were able to purchase 10 trikes-valued at $3,000-$3500 a piece that went to amputees. Food was delivered to almost every soup kitchen and shelter in Baltimore. And last but not least we were able to put a new roof on a home missions church. Praise God, this was a real miracle.
